Description

Chairs with their splats pierced with a decorative monogram are rare in eighteenth-century English furniture, and this chair is part of a unique American set. The initials "R.M.L." are those of Robert (1718–1775) and Margaret Beekman (1724–1800) Livingston of Clemont, a house on the Hudson River north of New York City.
